    sport kilt

    I'm looking for a kilt for a friends birthday. Not a real one, just one to use to change clothes in the parking lot. I've made them before but would rather buy this time. Anyone got a website for me?

    It is easier than you think.

    Try http://www.sportkilt.com/


    I believe this is the website that Pak Ratt recommended.

    Thanks, I've already looked there, that's not quite what I was looking for.

    That sounds exactly like what I thought you were looking for. Well, maybe not the one with all the bells and whistles, but the original sport kilt. That was precisely their selling point when they came out- to change before/after a ride. Could you perhaps elaborate a bit more on what you're looking for if these don't cut it?

    Dallas paramedic Ben Thornton was not just wearing a kilt at Ruston last weekend, but also RACED single speed in it too (where he even finished 3rd). Perhaps you can ask him where he got his threads.

    These are really nice kilts, I just didn't want to spend $60.

    I think the Sportkilts are WAY overpriced.

    As I mentioned in Rob's B-Day thread, a buddy I work with out here (who among other things is a rigger) "reverse-engineered' a sportkilt. He made me two for $16 worth of materials.

    Yes, I would be making one, but it seems my sewing machine went off to college.

    How about a towel?
    Seriously I got a sport kilt and it just stays home. Thats a lot of material just to pull the bibs down and undies up. We're talking a 3 second full moon.

More importantly though, the possession of a towel during interstellar adventures is in itself a symbol of great virtue. Apparently, "any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with."

    Is it for a man or a woman? www.lip-service.com has some very cute women's tartan kilt miniskirts. There's also Utilikilts for men.

    thanks for the info everyone. I went ahead and bought one from Sportkilts and got a couple of others to go in on the gift. Pak Ratt has a pic on the wall of fame on their website. I suppose I should get myself one, they are pretty cool.

    I had an "incident" with a towel while changing once...


    I was a non-believer, but after a few of the longer races I've done this past summer (100 mile+ on MTB, etc), Kilts are AWESOME to wear around camp to "air out"

    I think that's a little more than I wanted to know.

    I just bring a couple of sheets of plywood, two by fours, sheetrock and some drywall and make a little changing room outside my car.
